US Embassy Caracas Suspends New Tourist Visa Issuance
The US Embassy Caracas (Venezuela) issued a notice March 24, 2014, stating that as a result of the expulsion of several US consular officials along with Venezuelan government delays in issuing visas for incoming officers, the US Embassy Caracas does not have sufficient consular staff at present to continue to schedule appointments for first-time tourist (B-1 and B-2) visa applicants. Until further notice, the US Embassy Caracas can offer such appointments only in emergency situations.
If you already have an appointment, please appear at the appointed date and time, because it is unlikely under current staffing conditions that we will be able to re-schedule your interview in a timely manner.
For more information and updates, please see the US Embassy Caracas web site.
